After a stressful and tension bogged week at the office, the best way to blow of some steam is to hang out with your best friends. I am lucky to have two best friends who I can count on to make me laugh and forget about the problems at work for a few hours. I count myself fortunate to have such friends and, rightfully, I look forward to meeting these two guys.
For new readers, I met Madhu & Anil in 2003, while the three of us were working for AspinWall in their outbound sales Call Center. The two of them had already meet a few weeks earlier and over the next few months, we became a trio of close friends and who have remained so despite the passing years. I have only worked with them for 7 months but they have remained my closest friends till date.
Madhu, Anil & me
As such, today evening we decided to get together for a few drinks, postoned from last week. We met at Malabar House Rooftop Garden bar and had a few drinks with some good food. Kozhuva fry, chilli pork, salad, garlic prawns, eggs & peanuts were wolfed down as we downed brandy, whiskey & vodka.
The hours went by quickly and before long we were all tired. I knew that by 10:30 pm I wanted to get back home and relax on my bed after a tough week at work. But unwinding by hanging out with your best buds is a great thing to do. Even if the discussions have become very predictable – marriage (or lack off in the case of Anil & me), family and I’ve asked them to try and look out for a new job for me as I want to get out of this company that I am currently in.
Just before 11 pm, I am back in my room, relaxing and letting the food digest and thinking about nothing but sleep for the rest of the weekend. Goodnite guys.
